Charles Krauthammer, Pulitzer Winner and Fox News Contributor, Dead at 68

Charles Krauthammer

Krauthammer won the Pulitzer for Commentary for his Washington Post columns in 1987.

In a Fox News special about his life, Krauthammer said he never dwelled on the day he hit the bottom of a swimming pool with his head, severing his spinal cord.

Krauthammer revealed earlier this month that he only had weeks to live.

Krauthammer underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen in August 2017, which was initially thought to have been a success, but eventually "caused a cascade of secondary complications", he wrote.
